'Talking' Mini Cooper - My Geeky Valentine

'Talking' Mini Cooper - My Geeky Valentine

A few days ago I asked you guys to help me find great Valentine's Day gifts for my geeky valentine, and while Brian's pick may be a little more extravagant than you are ready for, there is no reason a geeky girl or guy can't dream.

For those of you that missed it, last week the makers of Mini Coopers launched a new ad campaign with special billboards displaying personalized messages for mini drivers as they go by. How does it work? Mini Cooper drivers in trial cities filled out questionnaires with information like birth dates and special interests - for example "I love my girlfriend," "I need to work out after work" and "I love my boyfriend." The drivers were then given a chip with Radio Frequency Identification technology inside and the magic of technology takes over. Can you imagine getting your significant other a new Mini Cooper and then sending over a cute love-y dovey message? Too cute! What are you getting for your geeky Valentine?
